These were very good! My mom made them for us.

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup dried apricots

1/2 cup chopped dates ( dont buy pre-chopped as they may add flour to keep them from sticking)

3/4 cup dried cranberries

3/4 pecans

1 cup blanched almonds

1/4 orange juice, no pulp

1/2 cup confectioners' or powdered sugar

Combine dried fruit and nuts and chop it in the food processor on pulse till you get a coarse mixture. (about 1 minute). Add OJ and pulse again until mixture sticks together (about 15 seconds) Shape the mixture into 1 inch balls then roll them in sugar. Refrigerate, makes about 2 1/2 dozen

My mom put them in mini muffin paper liners for a cute look to them.

I didnt try these (casein intolerance and my mom used butter) but my family loved them. Im sure you could use margarine or shortening for them.

Tropical Snowballs

1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 1/4 cup flour blend ( my mom used pamela's with xantham included)

1/4 tsp salt

1 Tablespoon lemon zest

1 cup walnuts, finely chopped

powdered sugar to coat

heat oven to 400 degrees. Cream butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Add flour, salt, zest, and nuts stirring until a dough forms.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls, placing them an inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake them on the center rack for 10 minutes.

Allow cookies to cool slightly and roll each one in powdered sugar before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Roll them in sugar again after they have cooled completely. Makes around 3 1/2 dozen

    I recently started a medication that's known to cause hypothyroidism, and in me, it has. As I increased the dose, my TSH went higher, in an almost lockstep fashion. On the most recent set of blood tests, after my TSH had gone over the threshold, my GP decided to chuck a coeliac test in there since hypothyroidism can be linked to coeliac disease, even though it seems pretty much certain the hypothyroidism is caused by the medication.

    TDZ, that is interesting that you mention weed-eating as coinciding with the start of your husband's rash, as about 12 years ago I had a possibly similar experience.  It was in the spring (meaning late May here in SC Alaska), and I was cutting the lawn.  Rather than bagging up all the lawn clippings, I would just take the filled bag off the mower, walk into the woods behind the house, and pull out the clippings with my hand and then scatter them around (so that they didn't just all rot and feste

Right before the massive outbreak in November, there was a peppermint/chocolate-drizzled popcorn that I got at Walmart, and it gave both of us horrible diarrhea, and within a few days he was covered with more rash than ever before. Might have been unrelated, but it's the only unusual thing that times out right for any causality. Otherwise, he wasn't eating anything different. The first thing t
